A pioneer of the American animation industry, the famous American entrepreneur Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it you can do it.” Whenever I think of this adage, my mind inevitably races back to the days when I have spent hours reading about some of the greatest entrepreneurs of all time. These readings ignited in me an urge to become an entrepreneur. So, it wasn’t as much a decision to become an entrepreneur as it was just a realization that this is what I was meant to do. “Executives are constrained not by resources, but by their imagination” these are the words from Management guru, C K Prahalad. These words have inspired me to pursue course in management, through which I hope to get a foundation on which I would be able to build my entrepreneurial goals.
I have done my Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at College Of Engineering, Thalassery, completing the program in 2017 and achieving a cumulative GPA of 7.53. I feel several aspects of my undergraduate studies and experience that I had from my college days have the potential to become the foundational stones of my quest for a degree in management.
A management aspirant cannot be satisfied with mere technical and conceptual prowess. Life skills, social skills, and organizational skills become equally imperative. To this end, I have essayed many roles that highlight these traits in me. As a part of EEE association I have organised Electros 2016 a technical fest which included exhibitions, technical competition and many other games. I was the Department Head of Entrepreneurship Club, as a part of it I have got an opportunity to attend Start up Conclave 2016 at Trivandrum, where I got to meet and interact with many eminent start-up leaders. With my logical skills and quality of idea generation -both essential ingredients for a successful management student, I have secured a position as one of the recommended candidate for TGC-126, Technical Entry in The Indian Army.
Having taken the decision to immerse myself in a management program, the path ahead looks promising. In the next five years or so, I see myself reach a middle level manager position in an esteemed organisation. Once established in this position, eventually, in around 10 years from then, I aim to lead from the front and become the CEO of an organisation. I like to live a life less ordinary. Coming from an unremarkable background, I would aspire to leave a mark in the world and inspire many others like me.
As I now submit my humble application to this esteemed institution for the much acclaimed management program, I feel a few unique traits of mine help me stand out. I frequently venture out of my comfort zone. I do not hesitate to ask the questions I feel will inch me closer to the solution. I have the necessary organizational and team building skills so very necessary in every MBA aspirant. Finally, I believe I retain sharp logical reasoning skills, although there is still a long way to go in terms of experience. If selected for admission, I strongly believe I can contribute to your feted academic community even as I imbibe the competencies and conceptual grounding for a successful career in business.
